Jub Jub pro­tects HIS WIFE

Rap­per's en­tourage will not let peo­ple take pho­tos of the cou­ple

Move! - - CELEB WATCH - By Bon­gani Mdakane

MOLEMO ‘Jub Jub’ Maaro­hanye has taken it upon him­self that he will never al­low the me­dia to in­vade his pri­vate space. This vow was taken af­ter he was re­leased from prison early this year. The rap­per re­cently re­vealed in sev­eral in­ter­views that he is a mar­ried man, but de­clined to re­veal the iden­tity of his wife. Move! could not con­firm whether he got mar­ried while he was in prison or not.


Move! un­der­stands that Jub Jub met his sweet­heart, Zenith Mia, whom he claims to be his wife, while he was serv­ing his sen­tence in prison.

In­sid­ers claim that when the Ndikhokhele hit­maker met Zenith, a um­lungu of Ital­ian ori­gin, at a cor­rec­tional ser­vices event at the Jo­han­nes­burg Prison, which is in­fa­mously known as Sun City, he was smit­ten.

“Molemo met Zenith while he was in prison. She was at­tend­ing an event that was or­gan­ised by cor­rec­tional ser­vices and that’s how they clicked. At that time Jub Jub had just per­formed and af­ter Zenith em­braced him, they started chat­ting,” says a prison warder work­ing at Sun City.

An­other in­sider at Sun City claims that they were shocked when Zenith started vis­it­ing the prison of­ten.

“She would come here with lots of good­ies for Jub Jub and they would spend time to­gether dur­ing vis­it­ing hours. Some days she came with Jub Jub’s fam­ily,” says our source.


It is al­leged that as their re­la­tion­ship pro­gressed and they got se­ri­ous, Jub Jub asked his friends and prison author­i­ties to pro­tect the iden­tity of his wo­man from the pry­ing eye of the me­dia.

“Jub Jub made it clear to his friends and fam­ily that he would pre­fer to keep his re­la­tion­ship with Zenith un­der wraps as he didn’t want the me­dia to know about it. He learned the hard way to keep his life pri­vate,”says a friend close to the rap­per.

“He said the me­dia had no busi­ness know­ing his lover and he felt it was not go­ing to make sense to any­one that he has a wo­man while he is in prison.”


Jub Jub re­cently per­formed at for­mer SABC boss, Hlaudi Mot­soe­neng’s home com­ing party in Qwaqwa, Free State, where Move! spot­ted him and his wo­man.

They were later seen at a trendy lo­cal pub and shisa nyama called Lapologa in Phutha­ditjhaba in the com­pany of Lesedi FM’s ra­dio pre­sen­ter, Ba2­cada, who is also Jub Jub's man­ager. They were also seen with Jub Jub’s long-time friend, Bones, Morn­ing Live se­nior pro­ducer, Ra­bosana Maliehe and Hlaudi’s vo­cal sup­porter, Ernest Moikan­goa.

Zenith and Jub Jub re­laxed in­side the venue shar­ing jokes with pa­trons un­til the wee hours of the morn­ing. The cou­ple was seen kiss­ing and em­brac­ing each other, but Jub Jub’s en­tourage made it clear that no­body was al­lowed to take pic­tures of the cou­ple.

The me­dia was also barred from in­ter­view­ing Jub Jub or Zenith.

Asked whether Jub Jub and Zenith were in­deed an item, Ba2­cada says, “I don’t have Jub Jub’s num­ber and even if I had it, he is not go­ing to talk to you, sim­ple as that.”
